Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could anyone show to me that:

If dt is an infinitely small number, the probability that X is included within the interval (t, t + dt) is equal to f(t) dt ,i.e.

[itex]Pr(t<X<t+dt) = f(t)dt[/itex]

where f is the probability density function.

this sentence is from wikipedia but I could not prove this to myself.

Thanks if anyone can help.
